Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the experience in production or handling shows that the substance does not react with water, e.g. the substance is manufactured with water or washed with water
Justification for type of information:
JUSTIFICATION FOR DATA WAIVING
According to Column 2 of REACH Annex VII, the study does not need to be conducted since the substance does not react with water, i.e. it is marketed in water solutions.
Endpoint:
flammable solids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
weight of evidence
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Handbook peer reviewed.
Principles of method if other than guideline:
No data on test method.
GLP compliance:
not specified
Key result
Test procedure:
other: No data.
Remarks on result:
other: Not combustible.
Remarks:
Contact with combustible materials will increase fire hazard. Thermally unstable. Decomposes above 356 deg F (180 ºC) releasing heat. Flammability: 0.0 = This degree includes any material that will not burn under typical fire conditions.

Not combustible. Contact with combustible materials will increase fire hazard. Thermally unstable. Decomposes above 356 deg F (180 ºC) releasing heat.

Flammability: 0.0 = This degree includes any material that will not burn under typical fire conditions.


Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Conclusions:
Not combustible. Contact with combustible materials will increase fire hazard. Thermally unstable. Decomposes above 356 deg F (180 ºC) releasing heat.Flammability: 0.0 = This degree includes any material that will not burn under typical fire conditions.
Executive summary:

Not combustible. Contact with combustible materials will increase fire hazard. Thermally unstable. Decomposes above 356 deg F (180 ºC) releasing heat. Flammability: 0.0 = This degree includes any material that will not burn under typical fire conditions.

Sodium chlorite is not combustible but enhances combustion of other substances. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.


Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Conclusions:
Sodium chlorite is not combustible but enhances combustion of other substances. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.
Executive summary:

Sodium chlorite is not combustible but enhances combustion of other substances. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.

No data provided on the method.

Endpoint:
pyrophoric solids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
Justification for type of information:
JUSTIFICATION FOR DATA WAIVING
According to Column 2 of REACH Annex VII, the study does not need to be conducted since the substance is known to be stable in contact with air.

Description of key information

Weight of evidence: Sodium chlorite is not flammable.

Pyrophoricity (data waiving): According to Column 2 of REACH Annex VII, the study does not need to be conducted since the substance is known to be stable in contact with air.

Flammable in contact with water (data waiving): According to Column 2 of REACH Annex VII, the study does not need to be conducted since the substance does not react with water, i.e. it is marketed in water solutions.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on available information, the substance is not classified for flammability according to the CLP Regulation (EC) no. 1272/2008.
